This is a punk/alternative band whose members grew up near my house in Denver.
The first time I saw them was in Boulder at the Fox Theater with Fenix Tx.
Locally famous for songs like Last of the Mullets (youtube - pops to new window) and How to Escape (pops/youtube), I really thought they had the chops to make it to the big show. Alas, Denver being Denver at the time, and with a plethora of punk style groups such as Blink182 and Green Day already dominating the scene, it was not to be.
They broke up in 2005 to pursue other musical avenues. To my delight however, I found out they recently reunited and put out a new album. So I ran out and bought it and it's been rotated on my iPod the last couple of days.
I kindly submit for your listening enjoyment a song off the new album, with a neat little interactive puzzle video to go along with it.
note: If you solve the puzzle, you get a link to download the song for free.
Ladies and gentlemen, I humbly submit This Shell by The Gamits for your listening enjoyment.
I hope you like it!
an LJ book and music club!
